Septic Pumping

Now Available

Septic Pumping

The state requires us to inform you that for a complete inspection, the tank should be pumped.  We can inspect most tanks without pumping due to new technologies and tools in use, so our standard inspection does not include pumping.


You have the choice at the time you schedule the inspection to:

  • Have the tank pumped

  • Authorize us to pump the tank if necessary:

    • If either compartment has 33% or more of solid as recommended by the state

    • The water level is too high to complete the inspection

  • Decline to have the tank pumped


If we inspect without pumping, we will tell you as part of the report whether the tank:

  • Does not need to be pumped

  • Is about ready to be pumped - buyer can have it done before or after closing, or try to negotiate it with the seller

  • Is overly full - buyer or seller can arrange to have it pumped or contract with us to have it pumped.

Please contact our office if you have any questions, comments, or concerns.
